Each year, Google kicks off a project to support student technologists in contributing to open source between semesters, called Google Summer of Code (GSoC). This year, the Mozilla Science Lab is happy to announce that we will be a host organization for one student to work on collecting statistics and creating visualizations of our Study Group Project!
- Check out the Eligibility Criteria from Google to make sure you or someone you know qualifies, and browse the Student Manual for the terms and outline of GSoC as a program.
- Review the project details in our planning repository: https://github.com/mozillascience/studyGroup-GSOC
- Timeline – GSoC timeline for proposal submission
- Roadmap – outline for the project goals (short–>longterm) and the labeling schema for issues
- Readme – overview of the project and all metadata the students need for their proposals
- Issues – pre-populated with some idea issues from the roadmap, following the issue template
